Chelsea appoints Hiddink

Sunday, 20th December 2015 8:27am
Chelsea has appointed Guus Hiddink as manager until the end of the season to replace sacked Jose Mourinho.

Relegation dog fight: Chelsea vs Sunderland

Friday, 18th December 2015 6:52pm
One of the two relegation dog fights in round 17 of the English Premier League will see Chelsea fight it out against Sunderland at Stamford Bridge.

After a poor start to the season the champions find themselves at the wrong end of the table with only 15 points and one point above the relegation zone.

Sunderland under new manager Sam Allardyce are trying to pull themselves out of the relegation zone.

Manager-less Chelsea lost their last match 2-1 away to Leicester and their last home match was also a loss to Bournemouth.

The Black Cats' last match was a narrow 1-nil loss to Watford at home and their last away match was also a loss to Arsenal.

So both teams will be looking forward to pick a point or three in this match.

A loss for the home team could see them end the round in the relegation zone.

If the visitors lose then they will remain second from bottom but a win could see them leave the relegation zone.

Here is some stats for the two teams so far this season:

Monk, Swansea part ways

Thursday, 10th December 2015 10:07pm
Monk, Swansea part ways Swansea City has parted ways with its manager Garry Monk after a less than convincing start to the season.

The Welsh side has managed to win just one match in their past eleven matches despite a start that saw the team in the top four for the first four rounds of the season.

The Swans have slid down to 15th on the ladder and their only victory in the last eleven matches came against lowly Aston Villa.

Monk took over from Michael Laudrup in February 2014 and last season managed to get the team to finish in eight place.

Swansea's next match will be away to Manchester City.

First vs third: Chelsea vs Arsenal

Saturday, 22nd March 2014 1:02am
In the first match of round 31 of the English Premier League league leaders Chelsea host third placed Arsenal.

The two teams are separated by four points but the Gunners have a game in hand.

A win here for the home team will see them maintain pole position at the end of the round and maintain at least a four point lead at the top.

A loss for Chelsea will still leave them top of the table at the end of the round but all the three teams below them have either one or two games in hand and so that lead will be at best temporary.

A win for the visitors will see them close the gap to just one point and depending on other results could finish the round in second place.

Arsenal go into this match having beaten Tottenham Hotspurs in their last league match. Chelsea are coming from loss against Aston Villa.

Relegation dogfight: Cardiff vs Fulham

Friday, 7th March 2014 1:22pm
Round 29 of the English Premier League will see 19th placed Cardiff play against fellow relegation candidates Fulham.

Fulham are currently bottom and a win here will see them move one place and their hosts will take last position.

A win for the hosts will also see them move one place up into 17th place and a poor goal difference will stop them from leaving the relegation zone.

A draw will not be good for either team in their relegation fight although that could be the most likely result as both teams fight to avoid defeat.

One thing clear to both teams is that matches are beginning to run out as the season comes to an end and a win here will bolster confidence to whoever wins this six pointer.

Third vs fourth: Chelsea vs Liverpool

Friday, 27th December 2013 2:49pm
In round 19 of the English Premiership third placed Chelsea will face fourth placed Liverpool at Stamford Bridge.

The visitors who went into the Boxing day fixtures leading the table have now dropped to fourth following their loss against Manchester City.

Fulham sack Jol

Monday, 2nd December 2013 4:48am
Fulham has sacked Martin Jol after the team lost 3-nil to West Ham and slipped into the relegation zone.

That defeat left the Cottagers in the relegation zone and three points points adrift of Cardiff in 17th place.

Former Manchester United first team coach Rene Meulensteen will take charge of the first team from now on.

Jol joined the Cottagers in June 2011 and had seen his team struggle this season and the West Ham defeat was the fifth in a row hence the slide into the relegation zone.

2012/13 Premier League preview

Tuesday, 14th August 2012 1:01pm
The English Premier League kicks off for the new 2012/13 season this Saturday, 18th August.

It promises to be yet another exciting season with new managers at the helm at Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspurs, Swansea, Aston Villa, West Bromwich Albion and Norwich.

Of the teams that finished in the top five last season, only Spurs have changed its manager.

Former Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas takes the reigns at White Hart Lane and its interesting to see if the can improve on the fourth position the team finished in last season under Harry Redknapp.

It looks likely that the top four teams will be Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea in some order.

Liverpool could challenge for a top four finish and hence Champions League football in the 2013/14 season, but they will have to be better than Spurs and its debatable whether Newcastle can sustain last season's good run.

The newly promoted teams are Southampton, West Ham and Reading and it would seem like West Ham have made good preparations so far bringing in new players to strengthen their squad.

Reading and Soton will have to do the same or it will be a long season.

Norwich and Swansea did well last season but the managers responsible for that have since left and so it remains to be seen if the new managers can keep the teams well away from relegation.

For the teams that flirted with relegation last season, Aston Villa have done well to bring a good manager who did well in his first season in the top flight.

Wigan will have to start the season the way they finished the last one in order to stay in the division.

QPR will also have to start well and the get the team gelled early enough in the season. Mark Hughes will be there from the start and so that should help them.

The likes of Fulham, Everton, Sunderland and Stoke should be comfortable finishing mid-table.

TipsChallenge will continue with the English Premier League tipping competition and everyone in the competition gets a league table according to their predictions.

Reading back in top flight after promotion

Wednesday, 18th April 2012 1:56pm
Reading have won automatic promotion to the English Premier League with two matches to go.

Reading beat Nottingham Forest 1-nil to ensure that third placed West Ham United cannot overtake them with just two matches to go.

Reading now lead Southampton in second place by three points and will need to win their next two matches to be declared champions unless Southampton slips.

A draw could be enough for Southampton to also get automatic promotion but one win will seal it.

West Ham United can still be promoted of Southampton collects just one point or less in their last two matches and the Hammers theirs.

Tense affair: Man Utd vs Liverpool

Saturday, 11th February 2012 11:00pm
The first fixture of the English Premiership round 25 will see the two giants Manchester United and Liverpool clash at Old Trafford.

The two teams are separated by 16 points but the match will be much closer than that after Liverpool knocked out their hosts from the FA Cup.

Their last match at Anfield finished one-all but more than that was the Patrice Evra/Luis Suarez incident that ended with Suarez being suspended for eight matches for racially abusing Evra.

That incident will ensure that this will be a tense affair at Old Trafford.

Man Utd are just two points behind Man City and a win will see them take top position.

A win for Liverpool will see them go fifth and maintain the fight for Champions League football next season.

Here are some of the stats for the two teams:

Fourth vs Second: Chelsea vs Man Utd

Sunday, 5th February 2012 5:18pm
In round 24 of the English Premiership, fourth placed Chelsea will host second placed Manchester United.

This is a crucial match for both teams and both need to win it in order to keep up with Manchester City.

For the hosts it could be more to do with the Champions League place than the title as they are 15 points behind the league leaders at the moment.

A win for Manchester United will see them be once again on par with City and be second on goal difference.

Neither team will change positions because of a loss or a win but the benefit of the result will be felt by the surrounding teams like Tottenham Hotspurs, Arsenal and Newcastle.

In their match at Old Trafford, Man Utd won 3-1.

Relegation battle: Wolves vs Wigan

Saturday, 5th November 2011 4:58pm
Wolverhampton Wanderers are sitting just outside the relegation and they play Wigan who are at the foot of the table.

This win is very crucial to both teams as both are desperate for wins after just securing two so far for the home team and just one for the away team in ten matches.

Wolves have won just one match at home and drawn one whilst Wigan are still to win away from the DW Stadium.

Wigan has so far collected a single point from its travels and a match against a team just three points away from them may offer the opportunity to improve on that.

City hits six past United

Tuesday, 25th October 2011 1:52pm
Manchester City beat arch-rivals Manchester United 6-1 to inflict a rare defeat on its near neighbours.

Man United had not lost at home since April 2010 in season 2009/10 and went through the whole of the 2010/11 season unbeaten at home.

All that changed with City maintaining their top position on the table after handing the champions their heaviest defeat in the Premier League.

With that win, City has created a five point buffer at the top.

Chelsea failed to take advantage of the United's loss after losing 1-nil to Queens Park Rangers.

The first half penalty for QPR was enough to give them maximum points at Loftus Road for the first time this campaign.

In another derby in the Midlands, West Bromwich Albion overcame Aston Villa 2-1. It was the Baggies first win over Villa in the Premier League at Villa Park.

Here is a table for the home matches only so far:

Man United thrash Arsenal‏ to go top

Monday, 29th August 2011 6:56pm
Manchester United posted its biggest winning margin of the season so far by beating arch rivals Arsenal 8-2.

In a match supposed to be between the top two teams of English Premier League, Man United made light work of their rivals to rocket to the top of the table.

The Gunners scored their first league goals of the season in this match but lie fourth from the bottom with just one point from three matches.

Meanwhile, Manchester City pushed Tottenham Hotspurs aside as they won 5-1 to make Spurs continue anchoring the table.

Man City now lie second on the table because of goal difference.

Swansea drew another blank in their match against Sunderland at Liberty Stadium.

The newly promoted side lost its first top flight match but then has managed to straight goalless draws at home.

Swansea is not the only one involved in goalless, its so far the most popular scoreline with six matches finishing goalless.

This week I will take a look at the different scorelines so far:

Man City followed their 4-nil win on the opening weekend against Swansea Cityto beat Bolton 3-2 at the Reebok.

All three promoted sides got something from their matches. QPR put their 4-nil loss against Bolton aside to win away to Everton 1-nil.

Norwich and Swansea both drew but Swansea are still to score a goal in the premiership.

Five teams Tottenham, Swansea, Fulham, Everton and Arsenal are still to find the back of the net this season as shown in the table below:

Man City turns on the style

Tuesday, 16th August 2011 1:24pm
Manchester City started their 2011/12 English Premier League campaign with a convincing 4-nil win over newly promoted Swansea City.

The win leaves Man City second on the table behind Bolton Wanderers who beat another promoted team Queens Park Rangers 4-nil.

The third promoted team, Norwich had a reasonable start managing a one-all draw against Norwich.

The first round of the new campaign was marked by a string of goalless draws in the Newcastle/Arsenal, Fulham/Aston Villa and Stoke/Chelsea matches.

The Spurs and Everton match was postponed because of the London disturbances earlier in the week.

So in a round dominated by draws there were only three goal margins in nine matches:

2011/12 English Premiership kicks off

Thursday, 11th August 2011 11:23pm
The 2011/12 English Premiership season will kickoff this weekend with the defending champions Manchester United playing West Bromwich Albion.

Last season United won its 19th title and it will become the first team to win 20 titles if it successfully defend its title.

Chelsea and Manchester City finished with the same number of points last season with City having an inferior goal difference and these two teams will be hoping to challenge the champions.

Last season only promoted side, Blackpool, went down and so the three promoted sides QPR, Swansea and Norwich will be hoping that they can both stay in the top division.

Tuesday, 17th May 2011 1:03pm
West Ham got relegated in round 37 of the English Premiership after losing 3-2 to fellow relegation strugglers Wigan Athletic.

After the match Avram Grant, the Hammers manager got sacked and will therefore not take any in their last fixture of the season.

Saturday, 14th May 2011 10:23pm
Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspurs will meet in round 37 of the English Premiership to fight for the Europa place.

Spurs have been fighting for a place in the top four all season but recent results have meant that the North Londoners have now slipped down to sixth on table and in danger of missing European football altogether next season.

On the other hand Liverpool have had a dramatic second half of the season under Kenny Daglish and are now fighting for a place in the Europa Cup next season.

Relegation battle: Wigan vs West Ham

Saturday, 14th May 2011 10:18pm
The bottom two teams in the English Premiership, Wigan and West Ham meet in round 37 in a match neither team can afford to lose.

A loss for West Ham will spell relegation as that will mean they will only have three points to play for to bring their tally to 36 points.

A win will mean the Hammers can potentially finish on 39 points which will save them depending on other results.

A win for Wigan will take them to 39 points and the win will mean their fate will be in their own hands come the last weekend of the season.

A draw will also not do for the Hammers but that will spell relegation because then their maximum points will be 37 points.

Wigan could however do with a draw because a win in their last match could be enough to save them depending on other results.

Here is some of the stats for the two teams after 36 matches:

First vs second: Man Utd vs Chelsea

Saturday, 7th May 2011 11:33pm
One of the key fixtures of the English Premiership round 36 will see leaders Manchester United take on second placed Chelsea at Old Trafford.

The two teams are separated by just three points and a win for the visitors will see them top the league table.

A win for Manchester United will mean they will need one more win to clinch their 19th title.

A draw will be to United's advantage especially with just two matches left until the end of the season.

In their last two matches, United will play Blackburn away and Blackpool at home whilst Chelsea will play Newcastle at home and Everton away.

Interestingly when the two teams last met in March in the league, Chelsea were fourth then but they have since pulled themselves into second place.

Black Country derby : Wolves vs West Brom

Saturday, 7th May 2011 11:30pm
The second ever English Premiership Black Country derby will be played in round 36 as Wolverhampton Wanderers host West Bromwich Albion.

A few months ago this fixture looked like it was going to be a relegation dog fight but the Baggies have steered themselves from relegation and are now fighting to get their best ever finish in the premiership.

Wolves on the other hand are second from bottom and a win is crucial here especially as there will be two matches left after this match.

The two teams met in February and the match was drawn.

Norwich gains EPL automatic promotion

Tuesday, 3rd May 2011 1:36pm
Norwich beat Portsmouth 1-nil to secure second place in the Championship and automatic promotion to the Premier League.

Cardiff could have pushed the fight to the last match but they were shocked by Middlesbrough losing 3-nil at home.

Cardiff will now have to fight it out in the playoffs with Swansea, Reading and Nottingham Forest.

Leeds have a mathematical chance of a playoff but it looks unlikely because of the big goal difference that has to be overcome.

The promotion means Norwich have secured back to back promotions and will be back in the top flight after a six year absence.

Norwich joins Queens Park Rangers who won the Championship title.

Man City edges closer to Champions League

Tuesday, 26th April 2011 9:04am
Manchester City's 1-nil over struggling Blackburn Rovers saw them move closer to Champions League football next season.

Man City can also possibly finish as high as third if they win all their remaining fixtures and third placed Arsenal slip up.

The hosts remained fifth from the bottom with four matches left to play.

Their four matches include two against relegation threatened West Ham and Wolves plus matches against Bolton and Manchester United.

City needed a second half goal to make sure they moved four points clear of Tottenham Hotspurs in fifth and five behind Arsenal.

Key for City will be their match against Spurs but by then the match could be irrelevant depending on how Spurs play against Chelsea and Liverpool.

Going into the last four rounds, I will take a look at the form table for the last six matches in the English Premiership:


TeamPWDLForAGDPtsStreak
Chelsea 6 5 10 133 1016WDWWWW
Liverpool 6 4 11 154 1113WWLWDW
Man United 6 4 11 95 413LWWWDW
Everton 6 3 21 105 511DWDWWL

Sunderland 6 1 14 614 -84DLLLLW
Blackburn 6 0 33 59 -43LDDDLL
Blackpool 6 0 24 615 -92LDLLLD


So Blackpool and Blackburn have the worst form at the moment and leaders Manchester United will face these two teams in their last remaining four matches.

Chelsea and Liverpool are in top form in the last six matches and for Liverpool its a form that could give them Europa League football next season.

EPL round 34 preview: Sunderland vs Wigan

Saturday, 23rd April 2011 10:58am
Sunderland face Wigan in the English Premiership in round 34 knowing that another defeat will bring them even closer to the relegation zone.

Wigan sit just outside the relegation zone after beating Blackpool in the last round and a win at the Stadium of Light will see them one point behind their hosts.

The Black Cats who boast one their biggest wins of the season being a 3-nil over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, are on a poor run form that has seen them collect just one point in the last six matches.

For most of the first half of the season the Black Cats sat just outside the top six places but since the turn of the year its been a free fall.

A win for Sunderland will see them reach 41 points and possibly the top half of the table depending on other results.

A draw will leave both teams in the relagation mix.

North London derby: Spurs vs Arsenal

Wednesday, 20th April 2011 9:02pm
Tottenham Hotspurs and Arsenal are meeting in a North London derby that could make or break their seasons.

This is the match that was postponed for the Gunners to play in the Carling Cup final which they lost to Birmingham.

If the Gunners win this match then they will reduce the gap between themselves and leaders Manchester United to four points with just five matches left.

One of the five remaining matches for Arsenal is against Manchester United.

A loss for Arsenal and they could end in third place if Chelsea beat Birmingham in a fixture being played at the same time.

A draw will also see Arsenal slip to third should Chelsea win.

For Spurs trying to get Champions League football next season, a win will see them equal on points with fourth placed Manchester City. Poor goal difference will keep them in fifth place.

A loss for Spurs and the poor goal difference could mean that Champions League will not be at White Hart Lane next season.

Interestingly the game in hand for Spurs is against Manchester City which is scheduled to be played next month.

So this derby in no ordinary derby this time and in the first fixture Spurs made a stunning comeback to beat Arsenal 3-2 at the Emirates.

Bridge battle: Chelsea vs Manchester Utd

Tuesday, 1st March 2011 11:45pm

The champions are struggling at the moment and are currently in fifth place and 15 points behind the visitors.

Instead of fighting to defend the title, Chelsea's immediate battle looks like its the right to play Champions League football next season.

Liverpool complete double over Chelsea

Monday, 7th February 2011 1:24pm
Liverpool complete a double over Chelsea after beating the champions 1-nil at Stamford Bridge.

Following Manchester United's shock loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers and Arsenal's draw with Newcastle, Chelsea were expected to close the gap with a win over Liverpool.

The loss means that Chelsea stay in fourth place and Liverpool rises to sixth.

This is a remarkable rise for a club that was near the relegation places not so long ago.

Wolves shock win over Man Utd ensured they moved from the bottom of the table and have now been replaced by West Ham who lost to Birmingham City.

For the first time this season the "W" teams are now in the bottom four places: West Brom, Wigan, Wolves and Wigan.

Here is a goal margin table showing all the goal margins so far this season:


Goal MarginFrequency
0 74
1 96
2 51
3 20
4 6
5 2
6 5


So winning by one goal is the most popular followed by draws.

Monday, 7th February 2011 1:18pm
West Bromwich Albion has sacked its manager Roberto Di Matteo after losing 13 of its last 18 matches in all competitions.

Merseyside derby: Liverpool vs Everton

Sunday, 16th January 2011 5:39pm
Liverpool and Everton enter into the Merseyside derby in round 23 of the English Premiership with the two teams tied on the same points.

The two teams are separated by goal difference with the hosts having a poorer goal difference by just two goals.

In their earlier match this season, Liverpool lost 2-nil at Goodison Park and may find this a time to even things up and go above their rivals.

A win for either team could see them go as high as ninth on the table depending on other results and the number of goals scored.

A loss for Liverpool means they will remain 13th while a loss for Everton will see them drop also to 13th.

Relegation fight: West Ham vs Wolves

Saturday, 1st January 2011 9:55am
One of the key fixtures of round 21 of the English Premiership will see bottom placed West Ham face second from bottom Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Wolves had a shock victory over Liverpool that meant they moved one place up from bottom but in doing so they pushed the Hammers to finish the year in bottom place.

The Hammers have had a good run during the festive season and in the last three matches they have accumulated five points while Wolves two wins in the last three saw them get six crucial points.

The Midlands side must fancy themselves after their first away win of the season at Anfield and therefore they must be thinking they can do the same at Upton Park.

Depending on other results a win for either team could see them leave the relegation zone whilst a loss means the losing side will anchor the table.

A draw will leave the two teams in their current positions and so that may not be an interesting prospect for either team.

Here is some of the stats for the two teams so far:

Wolves shock Liverpool as Chelsea wins at last

Thursday, 30th December 2010 10:19pm
Relegation threatened Wolverhampton Wanderers shocked Liverpool with a 1-nil win at Anfield in the last match of round 20 of the English Premiership.

Wolves would had played Wigan three days earlier played a Liverpool side whose match against Blackpool was postponed, scored a second half goal to earn only their first away win.

The win sees Wolves go one place up to second from bottom whilst West Ham United return to anchor the table.

Chelsea on the other hand won a match for the first time since the November 10 win over Fulham.

After that Fulham match the champions had drawn three and lost three.

But the champions are still to score more than one goal in the league in nine matches.

Arsenal could only manage a draw against ten man Wigan and now stay in third place, two points behind leaders Manchester United.

With Wolves securing their first away of the season, the table below shows the away table showing only the away matches:

Man City 10 6 22 199 1020

Relegation scrap: Wolves vs Wigan

Sunday, 26th December 2010 12:10am
Two teams languishing in the relegation zone Wolverhampton Wanderers and Wigan face each in round 19 of the English Premiership.

The hosts are one point behind the visitors and a win will take them out of the relegation places as long as Fulham fails to win its match.

A win will also take Wigan out of the drop zone also as long as Fulham fails to win against West Ham.

Wolves have won four matches at home and drawn two and lost three.

Wigan on the other hand has only won once away from the DW Stadium and will therefore need to improve on that if they are to avoid the chop.

Fourth vs First: Chelsea vs Man Utd

Sunday, 19th December 2010 5:38pm
In round 18 of the English Premiership, defending champions Chelsea currently in fourth place on the table will face pacesetters Manchester United.

Man Utd are currently on top of the table after their win over Arsenal in round 17 and now have a chance to extend their lead at the top to five points with a win at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea had a brilliant start to the season with some 6-nil wins building up a huge goal difference but over the last month the team has failed to win a single league match.

A draw against Tottenham Hotspurs in their last match could have given them hope but the team needs to start winning matches to successfully defend the title.

Man United remain undefeated nearly halfway through the season and they would be desperate to avoid defeat against their title rivals.

Black Country derby : West Brom vs Wolves

Saturday, 18th December 2010 7:51am
Round 18 of the English Premier League will see the first Premier League Black Country derby as West Bromwich Albion hosts Wolverhampton at the Hawthorns.

The Baggies and Wolves have never been in the Premier League at the same time until this season.

The hosts are currently in eleventh place while their guests are languishing in the relegation zone in 19th place on the table.

Wolves did very last season and at no time during that season did they skirt with relegation but things have been so different this season four wins all picked up at home.

Their Achilles heal has the away form where Wolves are still to win away from Molineux and have so far collected a single point from eight away matches.

The Baggies started the season well despite the 6-nil to Chelsea in the first round and have only lost twice at home in their eight home matches.

Second vs First: Man U vs Arsenal

Saturday, 11th December 2010 10:03pm
In round 17 of the English Premiership league leaders Arsenal will play second placed Manchester United at Old Trafford.

United are one point behind the Gunners but they have a game in hand after their match in round 16 against Blackpool was postponed.

A win for the visitors will see them open a four point gap which would be handy especially if United were to win their game in hand.

However, a win for United will see them take over top spot and with a game that is potentially five points ahead.

United are the only team still to lose a match in the Premiership and have the best form at the moment.

In their last six fixtures United have accumulated a total of 14 points compared to the Gunners 12.

No happy return for Houllier to Anfield

Tuesday, 7th December 2010 9:52pm
Aston Villa lost 3-nil to Liverpool as boss Gerard Houllier made an unhappy return to Anfield.

The former Liverpool boss was going back to Anfield for the first time since taking over the reins at Villa Park and Liverpool were 2-nil up by half-time.

The third goal was scored early in the second half to make sure that the home reached eighth position as round 16 of the English Premier League came to a close.

The loss means that Villa are now just two places above the relegation zone and two points ahead of Wigan in 18th place.

One match was not played in this round as the match Blackpool and Manchester United was cancelled.

There are new leaders at the top of the table with Arsenal taking over pole position after beating Fulham who are spiralling down towards relegation.

Champions Chelsea don't seem able to win a Premier League after another draw and this time against Everton at home.

West Ham stay rooted at the bottom after losing 1-nil to Sunderland. The other two teams in the relegation zone are Wolverhampton Wanderers and Wigan.

Below is the current form table and it shows Wolves as the team with the last form in the last six matches:

Magpies sack boss Hughton

Tuesday, 7th December 2010 8:42pm
Newcastle United have sacked manager Chris Hughton after 16 league matches into the season.

The Magpies were promoted from the Championship as champions and after only one season with Hughton as boss but the club has decided he will not be taking them to the end of the season.

Last season the Magpies on lost four matches and accumulated a record 102 points and Hughton continued with more or less the same squad and he leaves his team in a respectable eleventh position on the table.

Hughton becomes the first Premiership manager to be sacked this season.

Here is some stats for Newcastle's Hughton:

Spurs pushes Liverpool aside to go fifth

Monday, 29th November 2010 10:59pm
For the second week in a row, Tottenham Hotspurs came from behind to win as they beat Liverpool 2-1 at White Hart Lane.

Liverpool were the first to score in the first half but two goals in the second half sealed the win for Spurs who now sit in fith place on the table a point behind fourth place Manchester City.

Manchester United went to the top of the table after Chelsea could only draw away to Newcastle.

Manchester United won 7-1 against Blackburn and now the team has the same goal difference of 19 goals as Chelsea who are now in second place.

A rare win for West Ham was not enough to lift them up from the foot of the table as Wolverhampton Wanderers also won against high flying Sunderland.

However, the Hammers now anchor the table on goal difference and another win in their next match could take them out of the relegation zone.

With Man United winning by a six goal margin, here is a table showing the rest of the goal margins so far the in the English Premiership:


Goal MarginFrequency
0 50
1 54
2 26

So a one goal winning margin is the most popular winning at the moment.

Spurs home form faces Liverpool test

Saturday, 27th November 2010 9:46pm
Tottenham Hotspurs has only lost once at White Hart Lane this season and in round 15 of the English Premiership the team will face Liverpool.

Liverpool have won its last two matches and comes to the Lane against a team that replaced it in the top four last season.

Spurs lost at home to Wigan in the third round and since then they haven't lost a match at the Lane.

The two teams are thre places apart on the ladder and they are also separated by three points with the hosts in sixth place.

Therefore a win for Liverpool will see them level on points with Spurs but a loss will see them six points behind.

Away from Anfield Liverpool has only won at the Reebok and this is another chance to win at a tough stadium for away teams.

Sunderland shock Chelsea to reach top six

Monday, 15th November 2010 2:04pm
Sunderland avenged last season's 7-2 loss to the champions by beating them 3-nil at Stamford Bridge.

This is Chelsea's heaviest defeat so far this season having lost 2-nil and 1-nil before to Liverpool and Manchester City respectively.

This is a second loss in two consecutive weeks for the champions whose lead at the top has now been reduced to two points.

Its interesting to see that so far that when Chelsea has lost, they team has also drawn a blank.

The unlikely win for the Black Cats sees them go into sixth place.

In second place is Arsenal who beat Everton 2-1 at Goodison Park.

In round 13 there were four draws and only one of them was a scoring draw. This was the draw between Aston Villa and Manchester United which was 2-all.

The other draws were all goalless draws.

Goalless draws are now the third most popular scoreline at the moment with 13 matches finishing with that scoreline.

The most popular scoreline is also a draw, one-all with a total of 19 matches finishing with scoreline.

Here is the rest of the scorelines in the English premiership so far and their frequency:

EPL round 13: West Ham vs Blackpool

Saturday, 13th November 2010 8:09am
Premier League bottom placed West Ham United will face Blackpool at the back of two 2-all draws.

In their last two matches, the Hammers have taken the lead only for the opposition to score and end up drawing 2-all.

So in the past six matches they have drawn four and lost two and the two lost matches were lost to Manchester United and Arsenal, both away matches.

The Seasiders on the other hand have enjoyed mixed form in their last six matches where they actually accumulated a total of seven points from two wins and one draw.

What makes this match very interesting is that it will be viewed as winnable by both teams.

A win for the Hammers will see them stay in the relegation zone but possibly as bottom placed depending on the Wigan and Wolverhampton matches.

A win for Blackpool could see them rise as far as seventh place on the ladder depending on other matches.

So here is some of the stats for the two teams:

Manchester derby ends in stalemate

Thursday, 11th November 2010 9:46pm
The Manchester derby between City and United ended in a stalemate after both teams failed to find the back of the net.

In the tenth goalless draw of the season, the two Manchester teams shared the spoils to both stay in the top four places on the ladder.

This was the sixth draw for United which is the second highest number of draws in the premiership at the moment and for City this was only the third draw in a dozen matches.

Elsewhere there were wins for both Chelsea and Arsenal making sure that there were no positional changes in the top four positions.

Bottom placed West Ham United was involved in the second successive 2-all draw against West Bromwich Albion having drawn Birmingham by the same scoreline in round 11.

In both matches the Midlands teams came from behind to snatch a point against the Hammers.

This week I will show the away table having showed the home table in the last premiership review. Here it is showing only the matches played away:

Manchester derby: City vs United

Wednesday, 10th November 2010 1:58pm
Three points separate Mancheste City and Manchester United as they battle it out in the league in round 12 of the English Premier League.

City have just won a match in round 11 against West Bromwich Albion but before that they had lost two league matches and one Europa match.

In their last six matches United have won three and drawn three and a win here will help them put pressure on Chelsea who have a two point advantage.

A win for City means they will catch their city rivals points wise but depending on the scoreline they could stay under them because of goal difference.

Chelsea to test Liverpool's revival

Friday, 5th November 2010 11:18pm
Liverpool's recent good form will come under the microscope when the team meets champions Chelsea at Anfield in round eleven of the English Premiership.

Two wins for Liverpool against Blackburn Rovers and Bolton Wanderers have lifted the Anfield outfit from the relegation zone to 13th on the table.

Position 13 is a far cry for the team that has been used to be in the top four but a win against the table topping Chelsea will see Liverpool go up as far as fifth depending on other results.

Chelsea has only lost once in the league against Manchester City and a win here will make sure the team maintains its five point lead at the top.

In the same fixture last season the visitors won 2-nil on their way to winning the title.

Tough test for Spurs at Old Trafford

Thursday, 28th October 2010 11:16pm
Tottenham Hotspurs' quest to be part of the top four group will be scrutinised when the team visits Old Trafford in round 10 of the English Premiership.

Spurs are currently fifth on the table two points adrift of Manchester United who haven't lost a match so far in the league.

The visitors to Old Trafford have only lost once so far on the road having won two and drawn the other match but against Man United it will be a tough test.

On the other hand United have dropped two points at home in the draw against West Brom and will not be looking to drop further points especially against a direct rival for the Champions League places and even the title.

Below is some of the stats for the two teams so far this season:

Key win for the Gunners over City

Tuesday, 26th October 2010 1:39pm
In round 9 of the English Premiership, Arsenal beat Manchester City 3-nil to claim second place on the table.

This was a key away win for the Gunners against one of the title rivals and also the team lost the same fixture last season.

Third placed Manchester United won its first away fixture of the season after beating Stoke City 2-1.

For Man City it was their first home defeat and this reduces the number of teams unbeaten at home to six.

Liverpool remain in the relegation zone despite beating Blackburn 2-1 at Anfield.

Anchoring the ladder are West Ham United who lost to Newcastle at home and second from bottom is Wolverhampton Wanderers who lost to current leaders Chelsea.

Title challengers : Man City vs Chelsea

Friday, 24th September 2010 10:14pm
Premier League defending champions Chelsea will team for the first time this season a team that is challenging them for their title when they play Manchester City in round 6.

Chelsea have got a perfect record having won their first five fixtures and have so far conceded just one goal.

Man City were stunned by a last minute goal away to Sunderland for their only loss of the season but at Eastlands they have won one and drawn one.

Last season Man City were the only team to do a double on Chelsea beating them in both fixtures and they will looking forward to continue that trend if they are to run for the title themselves.

So here is few stats from the first five league matches so far:

Old Trafford battle: Man Utd vs Liverpool

Saturday, 18th September 2010 10:07pm
One of key fixtures in round 5 of the English Premiership will be the match at Old Trafford between Manchester United and Liverpool.

Manchester United are in third place on the table and Liverpool are in thirteenth but the gap in points is just three.

A win for the home team will see that gap increase to six but a loss will mean the teams will be equal on points.

The season is just four rounds old but a six points gap could be vital as to where the teams finish at the end of the season.

The Old Trafford outfit has a 100% home record at the moment and will therefore be trying to maintain that against their rivals.

Liverpool hasn't lost away from home so far having drawing one and won one and if they avoid defeat it means they will either be on equal points or just two points adrift.

Former Liverpool and Lyon manager Gerard Houllier will take over the reigns at Villa Park and replace Martin O'Neill.

O'Neill left Aston Villa just before the start of the season.

Black Cats stun Man City

Tuesday, 31st August 2010 11:03pm
Sunderland won its first match of the season after beating Manchester City 1-nil at the Stadium of Light.

The Black Cats scored from a penalty in the dying moments of the match to inflict Man City to its first defeat of the season.

There was also another surprise loss in the round with Tottenham Hotspurs losing 1-nil to Wigan at White Hart Lane.

Wigan had shipped ten goals in its first two fixtures but managed to keep a clean sheet against Spurs to record first win and first points.

Liverpool also recorded its first win of the season after overcoming West Bromwich Albion 1-nil at Anfield.

No 6-nil in round 3 and the highest winning margin came from Old Trafford where Manchester United beat winless West Ham United 3-nil.

6-nil : Its the order of the season

Wednesday, 25th August 2010 1:34pm
A total of twenty matches have been played so far in the English Premier League and four matches have finished 6-nil.

Defending champions Chelsea have won their first two matches 6-nil and they have been joined by Arsenal and Newcastle who won their round 2 matches by the same scoreline.

Blackpool opts for away start

Tuesday, 13th July 2010 7:23am
Blackpool will kick off their Premier League campaign at the DW Stadium instead of their home ground Bloomfield Road.

Blackpool's first ever premiership match will now be in the third round when they host Arsenal.

There is work at the moment at Bloomfield Road to boost the capacity of the stadium to 17,600 and its assumed that by the time the Gunners visit that work would have been completed.

Blackpool will now host Wigan on the weekend of April 16, 2011.

Liverpool appoints Hodgson

Thursday, 1st July 2010 10:57pm
Liverpool has appointed Roy Hodgson to take over from Rafa Benitez who left the club after the end of last season.

Hodgson leaves Fulham which he took to the Europa Cup final where his team lost to Atletico Madrid.

The much travelled manager will try to try and arrest the decline at Anfield with the team finishing seventh last season and winning no silverware.

Liverpool had finished second at the end of the 2008/9 season and there were hopes that the team would even try and win the Premiership but the Anfield outfit ended up fighting for a Europa Cup placing.

Hodgson's first premiership match will be against Arsenal at Anfield.

Liverpool, Gunners clash in first round

Thursday, 17th June 2010 10:35pm
The 2010/11 English Premier League fixtures have been released and Liverpool will host Arsenal at Anfield in the first round.

Liverpool finished seventh last season whilst the Gunners got third place and therefore next season both could be trying to make amends as they also challenge for the title.

Another interesting fixture will see Tottenham Hotspurs host their rivals for fourth place last season Manchester City in round one. In that same fixture last season City lost 3-nil and that was the last match for former manager Mark Hughes.

The promoted sides Newcastle United, West Bromwich Albion and Blackpool will face Manchester United, Chelsea and Wigan respectively.

The Premier League season will kickoff on August 14 and round 38 will be played on 22 May, 2011.

TipsChallenge will be running another Premier League tipping competition.

Benitez, Liverpool part company

Friday, 4th June 2010 6:43am
Liverpool's manager Rafa Benitez has left the team after a reign of six years after finishing trophyless last season.

In the just ended season Liverpool finished seventh in the league and failed to progress to the knockout stage of the Champions League.

This is only the second time during Benitez's time for Liverpool to finish outside the Champions League places.

In the Europa Cup Liverpool were knocked out by Atletico Madrid who went on to win the final against Fulham.

Grant takes over at Upton Park

Thursday, 3rd June 2010 8:38pm
Former Chelsea and Portsmouth manager Avram Grant has been named as the new manager for West Ham.

Grant comes to Upton Park to replace Gianfranco Zola who was sacked at the end of the season after the Hammers finished fourth from bottom.

The Hammers could only amass 35 points and that was enough to keep them in the top flight. Three years ago the Hammers also flirted with relegation and also survived.

For a team that lost so many matches, lets take a look at the Hammers winning/losing trend for the 2009/10 season which Grant will need to reverse:


TrendFrequencyPercentage(%)
West Ham leading at half time, West Ham winning at full time 725.9
West Ham leading at half time, West Ham losing at full time 00.0
West Ham trailing at half time, West Ham winning at full time 00.0
West Ham trailing at half time, West Ham losing at full time 1140.7
West Ham drawing at half time, West Ham winning at full time 13.7
West Ham drawing at half time, West Ham losing at full time 829.6
Matches ending in result 2771.1

and the Hammers drew 11 matches and this was the trend:


TrendFrequencyPercentage
West Ham drawing at half time, West Ham drawing at full time 545.5
West Ham team leading at half time, West Ham drawing at full time 327.3
West Ham trailing at half time, West Ham drawing at full time 327.3
Drawn matches 1128.9


Its interesting to note that West Ham never lost a match where they were in the lead at half time.

The Hammers led at half time in 10 matches and went on to win 7 of those matches and drew the other three but did not lose.

The downside is that they didn't win any match they fell behind at the break only salvaging three draws in those matches.

Blackpool overcome Cardiff to reach premiership

Sunday, 23rd May 2010 9:58pm
Blackpool completed the lineup for teams in the English Premiership in the 2010/11 season after beating Cardiff 3-2 to gain promotion.

Newcastle United and West Bromwich Albion secured automatic promotion after finishing first and second respectively and Blackpool went through the longer playoff route.

Blackpool finished sixth in the Championship, nine points behind third placed Nottingham Forest and six points behind Cardiff.

But three first half goals was all they needed to secure their place in the top flight.

FA Cup: top vs bottom

Friday, 14th May 2010 11:32pm
Its the FA Cup but in Premiership terms its an encounter between the top team versus the bottom team as Chelsea face Portsmouth.

Chelsea finished top of the league whilst their rivals with their nine point deduction finished bottom and the two teams face up in the FA Cup final.

Portsmouth would still have finished bottom if the nine deducted points were reinstated and therefore its a true top vs bottom contest.

In the league, Pompey won just seven matches compared with the champions who won 27 matches. Pompey lost 24 of its matches compared to Chelsea who lost six matches.

But this is a Cup game and therefore the league position may be irrelevant and whoever is better on the day will take the Cup home.

So here is a comparison of the two teams league performance over the course of the season:

Chelsea wins title in style

Tuesday, 11th May 2010 1:47pm
Chelsea won the English Premier League title in style after beating Wigan 8-nil at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea needed a win to win the title and stop second placed Manchester United from claiming their fourth successive title and they made it look so easy.

Also Chelsea set a new record scoring 103 goals from their 38 matches and in the season managed to score seven goals in three matches.

Arsenal beat Europa Cup finalists Fulham to secure third place and avoid the need for Champions League playoffs.

Going into the final round, the relegation places had already been decided but Burnley still managed to beat Tottenham Hotspurs who had already secured fourth place.

Liverpool finished the season with a goalless draw to finish seventh.

Below is the graph showing the goals scored by each for the 2009/10 Premier league season:

Spurs secure Champions League place

Thursday, 6th May 2010 7:12am
Tottenham Hotspurs secured next season's Champions League qualification after beating rivals Manchester City 1-nil at Eastlands.

The results means Spurs complete a double over City after beating the team 3-nil at White Hart Lane.

City needed at least a draw to stay in the hunt going into the last round fixtures but a loss means that Spurs have opened a four point gap.

Spurs can still get third place if Arsenal slips in its match against Fulham and Spurs win over already relegated Burnley.

So with one match to go here is Spurs season in numbers so far:

Fourth place battle: Man City vs Spurs

Tuesday, 4th May 2010 7:34pm
Tottenham Hotspurs plays Manchester City knowing that victory will give them at least fourth place at the worst as they play in this midweek fixture.

Both teams collected full points in their round 37 fixtures and now they have a showdown which will guarantee a winner a foothold on fourth place with just one match to go.

A draw will be good for Spurs because it means they stay in front and will control their own destiny.

A draw will need Man City to rely on Spurs drawing their last fixture of the season whilst City wins its own.

Both teams finish the season with away matches with Spurs playing Burnley and Man City away to West Ham.

Spurs can still finish third in the league this season if they win both their last two matches and Arsenal loses its final fixture against Fulham.

In their fixture at White Hart Lane in round 16, Spurs won 3-nil.

So here is some of the stats for the teams so far this season:

Hull off to Championship

Tuesday, 4th May 2010 1:39pm
Hull City was relegated to the Championship after drawing 2-all with Wigan.

Hull needed to win the match in order to stay with a mathematical chance of surviving going into their last match against Liverpool.

The draw officially ended Hull's two year tenure in the top and will now join Portsmouth and Burnley.

Meanwhile after the last round of the Championship was played over the weekend, Nottingham Forest, Cardiff, Leicester and Blackpool will contest the playoffs to decide the team to join promoted Newcastle United and West Bromwich Albion in the premiership.

Two different agendas: Liverpool vs Chelsea

Saturday, 1st May 2010 12:07am
Chelsea will take its title battle to Anfield when it takes on seventh placed Liverpool in round 37 of the English Premiership.

The two teams needs for different teams and for Chelsea they need to win to remain in contention for the title whilst Liverpool needs a win to stay in the hunt for fourth place on the table.

In the event of Manchester United beating Sunderland, Chelsea needs to win this match to remain in pole position for the title.

Liverpool can only reach a maximum of 68 points and at the moment its still possible for 68 points to achieve fourth place although its very unlikely especially with Manchester City playing Tottenham in midweek.

The Anfield outfit has just been knocked out of the Europa Cup and therefore the two remaining fixtures have become very significant to achieve as high a position as possible.

Chelsea beat Stoke 7-nil in their last league game match and needs seven more goal to reach a century of goals.

In their last league match Liverpool beat Burnley 4-nil to stay in touch with the other teams chasing for fourth place.

In their previous match this season Chelsea beat Liverpool 2-nil.

So both teams need to win to reach their agendas as the season comes to a close and here is some of the stats for the two teams so far this season:

Fourth place battle: Man City vs Villa

Friday, 30th April 2010 11:50pm
The battle for fourth place continues in round 37 of the English Premiership with Manchester City battling it out against Aston Villa.

This is a direct battle between two teams vying for fourth place and winner will get a big boost in securing that place depending also on other results.

City go into this match having failed to score in their previous two matches against a Villa side that has maintained clean sheets in its last two matches.

Their previous match earlier in the season ended in a one all draw and this time a draw may not be a favourable result for either team.

The home team are currently a point behind their visitors and a win here will see them jump over their opponents into fourth or fifth position dependent on the Spurs/Bolton result.

A win for Villa could also see them in fourth place if Spurs fail to get a result in their match.

Burnley relegated after one season

Monday, 26th April 2010 7:48am
Burnley has been relegated into the Championship after one season in the Premier League after losing 4-nil to Liverpool.

Burnley needed to win the match in order to stay in the top flight and there was a bit of hope as the teams went into half-time goalless.

Liverpool scored four second half goals to seal Burnley's fate.

If Burnley wins its last two matches, the team can only have a tally of 33 points which is less than what West Ham United in fourth place from the bottom have at the moment.

Burnley are more likely to be joined by Hull City in the Championship next season. Hull have a mathematical chance of surviving but in reality they cannot score the 23 goals needed to to better their goal difference.

With two matches to go here is Burnley's season so far:

Man Utd faces Spurs test

Friday, 23rd April 2010 8:25pm
Second placed Manchester United will face an in-form Tottenham Hotspurs in round 36 of the English Premiership.

Spurs are coming from two wins against teams either side of United, Chelsea and Arsenal.

The North London team are still in the run for third place in the league whilst for United the title is still up for grabs if league leaders Chelsea slip in any one their remaining three matches.

United have only lost twice and drawn once at Old Trafford whilst away from White Hart Lane Spurs have lost five and drawn five.

A win for the home team will see them top the table because Chelsea only plays on Sunday whilst a win for Spurs means they will finish the round in fourth place.

Here is some of the stats for the two teams this season:

Newcastle wraps up Championship title

Tuesday, 20th April 2010 8:50pm
Newcastle United finished their Championship season as champions after beating Plymouth 2-nil.

The Magpies only needed a point to win the title but they secured all three points against the relegation threatened Plymouth.

Its been a very good season for Newcastle who are still unbeaten at home and could finish the season that way with their last fixture being against Ipswich.

Five teams Nottingham Forest, Cardiff, Leicester, Swansea and Blackpool are still vying for the playoffs which will determine the third team to join Newcastle and West Bromwich Albion in the premiership next season.

Wigan clutter Arsenal's title hopes

Monday, 19th April 2010 11:56pm
Wigan Athletic beat Arsenal 3-2 to dash Arsenal's hopes of a title with only three matches to go.

The Gunners can only with 80 points this season if they win their remaining fixtures and that may not be enough to win the title with Chelsea only needing a win to get to that point tally.

The win was priceless for Wigan as they now have 35 points and one win in their remaining three matches will mean the team will have top flight football next season.

Manchester United won the Manchester derby with a goal in the last minute and with Chelsea losing to Tottenham Hotspurs, the gap at the top has been reduced to just one point.

Manchester United last three fixtures are against Spurs at home, Sunderland away and Stoke at home.

Chelsea's last three fixtures are Stoke at home, Liverpool away and Wigan at home.

Manchester derby : fourth vs second

Saturday, 17th April 2010 11:27am
In round 35 of the English Premiership, fourth placed Manchester City will battle it out against second placed Manchester United.

Both teams have something to chase with just four matches left (five for City) in the season and for United its the title and for City its fourth place.

In their earlier match this season United edged City 4-3 through a goal deep in injury time and since then there have been some changes at City.

City are going into the derby on equal form with United having won four, drawn one and lost one in their last six matches.

Even though a win will not immediately change the ladder position of either team, a win will go a long way in helping at least keep the teams in the hunt for fourth place or the title.

Here are some of the stats for the two teams so far this season:

Spurs beat Gunners to stay in hunt

Thursday, 15th April 2010 10:28pm
Tottenham Hotspurs beat Arsenal 2-1 at White Hart Lane in the English Premier League to stay in the hunt for fourth place.

This was Spurs first win over Arsenal in the league since 1999 and it came at a crucial time as Spurs chase the final Champions League qualifying place.

The other win for Spurs over their North London rivals was in the Carling Cup in the 2008/9 season.

The win has placed dents in the Gunners chase for the title as the team is now six points behind leaders Chelsea with just four matches to go.

With the goal difference Chelsea has it needs two more wins to make sure that they finish above the Gunners this season.

Aston Villa's chase for fourth place also got a big dent after being held to a 2-all draw at home against Everton. Villa have a good chance to finish above Liverpool but after the draw it may prove to be difficult.

FA Cup finalists and already relegated Portsmouth could only manage a goalless draw against Wigan. Wigan is hovering just above relegation and three points would have helped a lot in terms of safety but they let the chance go.

Back to the Spurs/Gunners match, this match was the 15th time Spurs had gone into half time leading the match this season. In all those fifteen times Spurs has gone on to win the match and here is the winning trend for the Premier League so far this season:


TrendFrequencyPercentage(%)
Home team leading at half time, home team winning at full time 11546.0
Away team leading at half time, away team winning at full time 5020.0

Advantage Man City as Liverpool draws again

Tuesday, 13th April 2010 11:07pm
In the on-going round 34 of the English Premier League, Liverpool drew its second match in a row to now trail Manchester City by six points.

Manchester City are in top form at the moment scoring 14 goals in their last three matches and conceding just two.

The goal difference that they have built now means that two more wins could be enough to make sure that Liverpool does not finish in the top four.

Fifth placed Tottenham Hotspurs are still to play Arsenal and a win in that match will see them close the gap with City to just one point.

In the relegation battle, Burnley won for the first time away from Turf Moor after beating Hull City 4-1.

That win was also Burnley's biggest win of the season and that was only the fourth time this season that Burnley has scored three goals or more in a match.

With three matches so far in this round ending goalless I will list below the other draw scores so far this season:

Pompey relegated after West Ham win

Sunday, 11th April 2010 5:14am
Portsmouth have relegated to the Championship following West Ham's 1-nil win over Sunderland.

Pompey currently have 14 points following the nine point points deduction following entering administration and with five matches remaining the maximum number of points they can accumulate is 29 which will place them in the bottom three.

Its been a poor season for Pompey with so much happening off the pitch and they will have to regroup again next season in the Championship.

West Brom regains promotion

Sunday, 11th April 2010 5:09am
West Bromwich Albion regained promotion back into the Premier League after beating Doncaster 3-2.

Third placed Nottingham Forest can only reach 84 points if they win all their remaining three matches and so the Baggies with 86 points cannot be reached.

Last week Newcastle United also secured promotion and that means two of the relegated sides from last season have bounced back immediately.

Hull in relegation battle against Burnley

Friday, 9th April 2010 8:55pm
One of key fixtures in round 34 of the English Premiership is the relegation battle between Hull City and Burnley.

Hull are currently three points ahead of Burnley and a win would take them out of the relegation zone if West Ham failed to beat Sunderland.

A win will not change the position for Burnley unless if they win by a five goal margin to have a better goal difference than Hull.

Burnley has the worst away record in the league and have only a single point and that was in a match at Eastlands against Manchester City.

Hull on the other hand has collected most of its points from home with 23 points coming from six wins and five draws at home.

In their previous match in round 11, Burnley won 2-nil at Turf Moor.

Newcastle back in top flight

Tuesday, 6th April 2010 1:56pm
Newcastle United got promoted into the English Premiership after beating Sheffield United 2-1.

The result leaves the team with 89 points from 41 matches and only second placed West Bromwich Albion can catch them now.

Newcastle has an impressive home record. They are unbeaten at St James Park so far after 21 matches and have dropped just eight points.

This is a swift return to the top flight by Newcastle having been relegated last season.

The battle to join Newcastle for an automatic promotion place is now between West Brom and Nottingham Forest.

Hull turns to Dowie

Thursday, 18th March 2010 11:32pm
Hull City have replaced Phil Brown with Iain Dowie who will take the team in the last nine matches of the season.

Hull are currently second from the bottom of the table and they have only won at home with no away wins to talk about.

Starting to win away could be the key to survival in their remaining nine fixtures, five are at home and four away.

The away matches are against fellow strugglers Portsmouth and then Stoke, Birmingham and Wigan.

The home ones will be against Fulham, Burnley, Sunderland, Wigan and the last fixture of the season will be against Liverpool.

Pompey deducted nine points

Wednesday, 17th March 2010 11:39pm
Porthsmouth have been deducted nine points after entering administration last month.

Pompey becomes the first English Premiership team to enter into administration and have points deducted as a result.

The bottom placed side now has ten points and the next team Hull is 14 points away.

With nine matches remaining, Portsmouth will need to win all of them in order to have a chance of surviving another year in the top flight.

The 27 points will leave the team on 37 points but its very unlikely that the team will get all points especially when you look at its season stats as given below:

Brown's reign ends at Hull

Wednesday, 17th March 2010 11:15pm
Phil Brown's reign as Hull City manager ended this week after the club decided to seek a new manager to steer the team away from relegation.

Brown took the Tigers to the premiership and in their first season in the English Premiership Hull managed to beat top sides like Arsenal and Tottenham away from KC Stadium.

However, despite the good start to the 2008/9 season, Hull did not perform particularly well in the second half of the season.

That poor spilled into this season and now the team lies second from bottom with just 24 points and a win from safety.

Hull has played 29 matches and therefore the new manager has nine matches to secure premiership survival.

Hull has won just five matches and all the wins were at home.

All the wins were won by a one goal margin. Hull is one of just two teams not to have won away so far this season. The other team is Burnley.

So here is some of the stats for Brown's Hull this season in the premiership:
